Mike, Tommy and Kevin break down the New York Times’ reviews of the three Mighty Ducks movies in an effort to get in a Twitter beef with the reviewers and the NYT. The reviewers seemed to hate the movies, but is there criticism founded?

 

Show Notes

The Rotten Tomatoes score for The Mighty Ducks: 15% for the critics.

The Rotten Tomatoes score for D2: 21 percent from the critics. 

The Rotten Tomatoes score for D3: 20 percent from the critics.

Janet Maslin’s review of The Mighty Ducks in the New York Times on October 2, 1992. 

Caryn James’ review of D2: The Mighty Ducks in the New York Times on March 25, 1994. 

Lawrence Van Gelder’s review of D3: The Mighty Ducks in the New York Times on October 4, 1996.

The Ducks only knock one lady in a fountain, and Fulton does it accidentally. Goldberg also steals some guy’s food:

Janet doesn’t seem to like this scene:

Here’s a link to all the uniforms the Anaheim Ducks have had in their history.

    I don’t really care much for critic reviews. Looking at %s at Rotten Tomatoes, for one… I’ve seen a number of movies I liked that they have very low scores for. So, whatever.

    Beg to disagree though, not everyone thinks D3 is the worst. =P
    I rank them this way: D1 > D3 > D2.
    I might even rank D3 above D1, or equal, depending on the mood. Lol!
    Beef, anyone? =P
    Note well: I am weird, and proud of it. 😉
